St. Charles has named its new Medical Director. Dr. Jeff Absalon, an internist practicing medicine in Bend for nearly a decade will work with fellow physicians on improving delivery of care and hopefully reducing or controlling healthcare costs. Dr. Absalon has been a champion of health care delivery reform in the region. His idea is simple. “Putting an emphasis on preventive care, putting an emphasis on coordinating care of people that have chronic medical conditions in a way that improves the efficiency, improves the access of care for patients to get in to the appropriate providers, to get into their doctors in a timely fashion, Those are sort of little things that together can have a huge impact on delivering better care and intimately controlling cost of care. “ Dr. Absalon will be St. Charles Medical Director and Kirk Schueller is the hospital's Chief Administrative Officer.
